Ann’s sport accomplishments and leadership experiences were recognized in 1994 when she was inducted into the Nova Scotia Sports Hall of Fame, and in 2007 was recognized as a “Woman of Excellence” by the Halifax Progress Club. Women Active NS awarded Ann their prestigious Trailblazer Award in 2019 - a nod to the legacy she has established raising awareness around gender equity.
A second opportunity to be recognized by the NS Sport Hall of Fame happened in 2017 when she joined the members of the 1977 Cheema Aquatic Club who were inducted in the team category. In October of 2019 Ann was inducted in the inaugural Cheema Aquatic Club Hall of Fame - an honor she shared with her late father.
